|Professor Sam El-Osta's (second from right, back row) research group|
When it comes to the epigenome, there is a fine line between clarity and confusion—walk that line and you will discover another fascinating level of transcription control.
So begins a review of the current state-of-play of studies into epigenetics in diabetic complications led by Professor Sam El-Osta from Monash University’s Department of Diabetes. The paper, which focusses particularly on the complication diabetic nephropathy (kidney disease), appeared on the cover of last month’s edition of ‘Diabetologia’.

As part of Paul Gill's PhD, he has been measuring SCFAs from Francine's patient samples. Paul has also been measuring SCFAs in many fermented foods and beverages. Some of the foods that he found to be high in SCFAs were vinegars, kombucha, pickled foods, kimchi and soft cheeses (which have been marketed to have 'health benefits', many of which are completely unsubstantiated).
Paul says, "We are now using this information to formulate a 'high SCFA diet', that we think could have therapeutic value in conditions such as hypertension, but also immune disease." And, watch this space, Paul is currently designing a dietary intervention study (hopefully launching by April-May) in order to investigate this - so we'll be calling out for recruits!
|Volunteers wanted with NO history of |
head injury for study.
PhD student Hannah Coyle's project is investigating traumatic brain injury, and involves using a non-invasive type of brain stimulation to learn more about changes post concussion and during recovery.
We need volunteers who have NO history of head injury to act as a comparison group. Participation will involve visiting our research centre in Prahran for three research sessions over a 6 month period.
Sessions take approximately 3 hours each.You will be compensated for your time and travel costs. Together we will complete an interview, do some thinking tasks, take a recording of your brain waves and give you a short session of non-invasive brain stimulation.
If you think this sounds interesting and would like to know more please contact Ms Hannah Coyle on 9076 9823 or at email@example.com
